Travels of a Plectrum Handcrafted Fyhrie Dulcimer
Instruments- discuss specific features, luthiers, instrument problems & questions
Long Suffering Wife and I have passed by the Plectrum Dulcimer shoppe in Laguna Canyon every Summer since we got married (1984), on our way to the Laguna Arts Festival. A couple of years ago we drove in to see if it was still there; the wooden sign out front is, but the shop wasn't. But I've been hankering for one of their dulcimers since and I finally got one today on Ebay. A nice, early on, late 1970's looker with a different headstock from the others I've seen, more of a curve to it. Anyway, if you google Jim Fyhrie you will come up with a couple of very nice pieces on Jim, including a write-up in the LA Times. I'm only sorry we didn't stop in earlier. Jim sounds like a good guy to know.
